Descripción Pantheon, 2010. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Tom Bissell is a Renaissance Man for our out-of-joint time . . . His descriptions of simulated gore and mayhem manage to be clinical, gripping, and hilarious all at once. He transmits to the reader the primitive, visceral excitements that make video games so enticing, even addictive, to their legions of devotees. One can almost understand why an intelligent, cultured man such as Bissell has been driven to dedicate large chunks of his adult life to bouts of gaming." - The New Republic "Even if Extra Lives wasnt the only book to deal with the future of videogames in a serious manner, it would probably still be the best one." - Newsweek "What should videogame criticism look like? Bissells book offers plenty of tantalizing possibilities. . . A deeply personal work, as entertaining as the video games it profiles . . . Its also the first book about videogames that non-gamers can actually enjoy." - Entertainment Weekly "For anyone who has spent a weekend thrilled by the prospect of beating a game, "Extra Lives" will cast the addiction in a new, cerebral light." - Washington Post "An important, relentlessly perceptive book . . . Bissell proves that its possible to ruminate on the past, present, and future of video games in a way that is both intellectually rigorous and consistently entertaining." - San Francisco Bay Guardian Bissell has written the finest account yet of what it feels like to be a video game player at this glorious, frustrating time, a rare moment when humanity encounters, as he writes, a form of storytelling that is, in many ways, completely unprecedented.- New York Times Book Review Fantastic . . . I wish, someday, to play a game that will stay wit me as long as this book about games. -Farhad Manjoo, Slate Extra Lives is the first truly indispensable work of literary nonfiction about societys most lucrative entertainment medium. Bissells commentary is marvelously astute and his enthusiasm for videogames beams through every inch of text. - Paste Magazine Tom Bissell is a Renaissance Man for our out-of-joint time . . . His descriptions of simulated gore and mayhem manage to be clinical, gripping, and hilarious all at once. He transmits to the reader the primitive, visceral excitements that make video games so enticing, even addictive, to their legions of devotees.

Bissell proves that its possible to ruminate on the past, present, and future of video games in a way that is both intellectually rigorous and consistently entertaining. - San Francisco Bay Guardian A master prose stylist, the erudite Bissell is frequently insightful. - Boston Globe A fascinating book . . . Extra Lives is like taking a private tour at a very exclusive museum, filled with lost masterpieces you never knew existed. You may not find yourself becoming a collector, but you won''t soon forget the experience. - San Francisco Chronicle This journalistic memoir is not only about the meaning of video games; its about the heat and hesitation of love. - Los Angeles Times Mr. Bissell is so descriptively alert that his accounts of pixelated derring-do may well interest even those who.
